CWORet sends us a link to Fox News which reports that 24-year-old Tyler Jackson who attempted to hijack a double-decker tourist bus in downtown DC, near the White House for some reason;

Police said the incident happened around 8 p.m., when the bus was stopped and nearly 60 people were on the top deck observing the White House. Jackson screamed at the bus driver, ran onto the bus and began beating the driver, witnesses and the driver told FOX 5.

The driver, who asked to remain anonymous, said Jackson yelled, “get out of here” and struck her multiple times in the face and head. She said she had no idea why Jackson attacked her.

The Secret Service arrested Jackson, a Marine sergeant at Quantico, and then turned him over to the Metro PD.

Jackson was charged with simple assault, unarmed carjacking, failure to obey, and resisting arrest. He pleaded not guilty at his arraignment on Monday and was released. Jackson was ordered to stay away from the White House and was scheduled to be back in court on Nov. 13.

    We’ve really got to quit asking “How crazy can you be?”

    Some of these folks are taking that as a challenge to set new lows, as if they were getting into the Guinness World Book of Records or sumptin’.

    That was truly “Bernathian Behavior”. Probably trying to get a mental evaluation so that he can get out of the “Corpse”. Shit, Klinger just wore dresses, wigs. n panties in his effort.

    Let’s see. . . checking rolls. . . . .Woo-hoo! He’s not one of mine! When I read “a Marine sergeant at Quantico” I started to get nervous!!

  8. Hack Stone says:

    Must be something in the water at Quantico. Maybe he is in the chain of command of the Colonel busted down in Florida soliciting, and decided to throw himself on the (Marmaluke or NCO?) sword to draw attention away from the Colonel.

    I don’t remember the line “hijack bus” in the Army NCO Creed but the Marines are a touch different.
    Weird times we’re living in…

    • SFC D says:

      Hijack the bus, no. BUT I’ve been tossed under it more than once. All together now, sing it with me! The wheels on the bus go round and round…

      • Roh-Dog says:

        I heard you were asking for it. You know, letting your misstep hang out all over the place like that.
        What’s a guy to do? You should probably mistake more carefully and choose who you mistake around.

  15. jonp says:

    I’m pretty sure he didn’t need that order to stay away from the White House. The Marines at Quantico have that covered

  16. CCO says:

    He thought the bus load of tourist were terrorists scouting for ways to penetrate White House security? See, he’s not crazy, he’s just Sgt. Gomer Pyle!
